And now, the GC on Dreamhost?

Bradicon has been, what’s the word, receiving use? And that, among other things, left Nine more than a little anxious for space.

In the meantime, I’d chanced a glance at the new WordPress back-end. And it put the GC to shame. Shinier and newer than that dust-covered thing called a WordPress installation which was running the GC.

I think you can see where I’m going with this. When Life presents two rabbits, and but a single Frisbee, what else can you do?

The first step: editing the DNS file. Some Putty, and a little Emacs later, and certain subdomains were pointed toward Dreamhost.

Everything went smoothly, until the point where it did not. And not for the first time, Dreamhost couldn’t help breaking.

I don’t know why I seem to run into so many problems with them. Maybe I just try to do weird things. But, oh, well. I figured that like the other times, if I waited a few days it would fix itself. And good news, it did! Just two days later.

So now the GC is on Dreamhost! (it’s still on Nine, for now)

Certain things don’t work (the galleries, mainly) and it definitely needs to be re-styled. But perhaps in time it will become again the GC we’ve all grown to love, or, failing that, tolerate.
